Posted: April 19, 2011 - 7:59am

After its previous decision to co-locate Brooklyn East Collegiate Charter School at Prospect Heights' P.S. 9 was overturned by the New York State Commissioner of Education David Steiner, the City's Department of Education has issued a revised plan it says addresses the issues raised by Commissioner Steiner.

The new plan, which parents and local elected officials have vowed to oppose, will be voted on by the DOE's Panel for Education Policy on May 18.

In the meantime, P.S. 9 parents are preparing a proposal to present to DOE seeking to expand P.S. 9 to grades pre-K through 8.
